“Sorry!” A boy practically shrieked after he bumped into me, I laughed softly, “It’s okay.” I replied as he helped me pick my stuff up, “I’m just in a rush and I wasn’t paying attention.” He rambled, “It’s okay, don’t worry.” I answered smiling, “I’m Y/N.” I said standing up straight, “Shawn.” He replied smiling.
That was the day I met my best friend, Shawn Mendes. We’re both pretty successful now, he’s a singer, he gets told he’s the next Justin Bieber, because of how his popularity is sky rocketing and as for me, I’m an actress. Mostly known for my role in Teen Wolf.
“Reunited last night!” I captioned my picture on Instagram of Shawn and I from the previous night. I locked my phone as I saw comments flooding in, fans ship us frequently but I’m not sure either of us feel this way. I stood up from my bed as I thought about our relationship, in high school I used to have the biggest crush on him but as we both became more well known it started to drift away- relationships aren’t exactly the most important thing for either of us right now. I trudged downstairs as my thoughts continued to wonder to Shawn.
He’s very sweet and caring, he knows basically everything about me, not to mention he’s good looking. I shook my head at the thought, “I don’t have time for a relationship, besides he seems to be crushing on Camilla.” I mumbled to myself as I walked into my kitchen. I shrugged it off, neither of us have time for relationships right now. I put my oatmeal in the microwave and sat down well I waited. I unlocked my phone and started scrolling through my mentions on Twitter. I saw one tweet with a picture of me and Shawn from high school. “They were even cute four years ago, I think they’d be a great couple!” I read from the tweet. I smiled blushing slightly and saved the picture.
Opening my messages I scrolled down to Shawn’s messages, I added the picture, “saw this on Twitter, made me remember how goofy we were in freshman year.” I typed out before pressing send and going to get my breakfast. I sat back down eating slowly, messing around on my phone as I waited for it to be time to get ready for the day.
I grew anxious as I finished having my dress be zipped up, the teen choice awards were tonight. I’ve been to them before, but I still get nervous for these types of events. “I heard Shawn’s going to be here.” My hair stylist almost squealed as she fixed my hair. I rolled my eyes jokingly, “Yeah he is.” I smiled slightly, “Are you going to talk to him?” She asked, “Of course, he’s my best friend.” I laughed, she nodded as I looked in the mirror, “Yeah, I forgot about that.” She admitted sheepishly.
I laughed along with her, the laughter slowly died down, “Well, I better get going.” I said seeing the driver ready to go, she nodded, “Have fun!” She replied as she started cleaning up her stuff, I smiled in return as I walked out the door. “Thank you.” I told the driver as he opened my door, “You’re welcome.” He replied.
The car pulled slowly to a stop as I looked through the tinted windows seeing a sea of people, interviewers lined up on the side of the carpet, I stepped out as my door was opened. Smiling and waving slightly as the screams increased. I started my long walk towards the actual orange carpet, smiling once again as I approached the cameras and interviewers. I stepped aside for my first interview, “Good to see you again Y/N!” He smiled, I recognized him as an interviewer from an interview I did a while ago. “Good to see you as well!” I greeted cheerily. I glanced around quickly before returning my attention to him.
“How has filming for a new season of Teen Wolf been?” He asked holding the microphone in front of me, “It’s been great, we actually just finished the filming for season five.” I answered, he nodded happily before continuing to ask me more questions.
I tripped forward almost falling but regaining my balance, I turned to see Shawn had walked into me, “Hey stranger.” I joked as the camera was still on us. “Hey.” He laughed and greeted the interviewer. “Well I really would like to stay and talk but I’ve got to get going.” Shawn said glancing away towards Camilla. I felt a tinge of jealousy and hurt at that but shrug it off, he hugged me quickly kissing my cheek before rushing off.
I finished off the interview before going on to the next one and the next one, until I finally finished and was able to get inside. I took my seat next to Jack and Jack. “Hey.” I smiled at the two boys, I haven’t seen them in a while. “Hey.” “Hello.” They chorused, “Who’s sitting next to me do you know?” I asked glancing around, “Shawn.” Johnson replied, Gilinsky nodded in agreement. I nodded slightly, staying silent, I’ve had a sudden realization today, my feelings for Shawn are definitely still there and I’ve felt awkward since that run in during the interview.
“You okay?” Johnson asked at the same time I heard Shawn say hey. I turned to my other side and saw Shawn sitting down, “Can we switch seats? Please?” I whispered to Johnson who was sitting right next to me, he looked confused but agreed anyways. Quickly I stood up and he slid over to my seat as I sat in his. Shawn leaned forward and looked at me confused. “Why did she do that?” I heard him whisper to Jack, I turned away and started talking to Gilinsky as Johnson answered with a simple, “I don’t know.”
— next morning
I groaned as I woke up to my phone ringing. I grew confused seeing Shawn calling me at 7:00am, I answered it being worried of something being wrong, “Hello?” I asked, “Y/N.” He sighed, “Why did you act like that last night, now everyone’s saying we aren’t friends anymore.” He added on, I became annoyed at what he said, “Is that all you care about?” I snapped into the phone, “That people are saying we aren’t friends anymore?” I added on, I heard him sigh again. “No of course that’s not all I care about.” He replied.
I sat up in my bed before answering, “Okay.” I responded shortly. “Why were you ignoring me?” He asked. My breathing hitched momentarily, “Shouldn’t you be talking to Camilla?” I asked bitterly, immediately gasping at what I said, “I didn’t mean it like that.” I rushed out instantly. He laughed softly, “Can I come over?” He asked catching me off guard, “Uh sure.” I replied, “Alright, see you soon.” He replied hanging up.
I jumped up and quickly made my self look decent.
“Hi.” I said opening the door to reveal Shawn. “Good morning.” He replied making me remember it was still early. “Oh yeah, good morning.” I laughed softly. I felt him staring at me as I walked into the living room, he followed behind me after shutting the front door. “I’m sorry for what I-” he cut me off as he pushed his lips to mine. I froze not responding to his movements, “I shouldn’t of done that.” He mumbled pulling back, I didn’t say anything, just watched as he rubbed the back of his neck nervously. “Shawn-” “No I should’ve asked you first and-” I cut him off this time pressing my lips to his.
I pulled back just enough to talk, my lips ghosting over his, “Shut up and kiss me.” I mumbled watching as his eyes shut and he did as told. My arms wrapped around his neck and his around my waist pulling me closer, my fingers lightly moved through his hair at the back of his neck. He pulled back to take a breath, “Woah.” He breathed out making me laugh. “Woah.” I reiterated, he laughed before hugging me, burying his head in my neck, “Be my girlfriend?” He asked quietly, “Yes.” I answered smiling. The fans were right.
